From 8 to 10 February 2015 the 12th Berlinale Co-Production Market will arrange
over 1000 one-on-one meetings for selected projects with potential co-producers,
financiers, world sales agents, distributors, as well as representatives of TV channels
and funding bodies.
The Berlinale Co-Production Market serves as a platform for producers to introduce
their feature projects. The festival also offers industry professional new insights into
financing options and valuable networking opportunities.
Experienced producers from around the world may submit new feature film projects
to the Berlinale Co-Production Market 2015 until 22 October 2014. With budgets
between one and twenty million euros, the projects should be suitable for
